Originally planned to go for half day trip, but decided on full day and incredibly glad we did! Darius was our guide/captain and was great, along with his wife Allie. I wanted a boat that only took a few passengers rather than 20-30. Cloud 9 only takes 6 people, so it was our family of 4 plus another couple. We... More

Full day snorkell and sunset cruise was just magical. Jason and Leslie tended to us and made sure we were safe. Leslie made us killer coffee in the morning and served some lovely muffins. Jason and Leslie regaled us with interesting stories about the various places we passed as we sailed. The first snorkel stop was filled with fish and... More

We had an amazing day with Allie and Darius on Cloud 9 Sailing. My husband, daughter and I took a private sail and did the Jost Van Dyke tour. It was a little windy on the way over bu it made it fun for sailing. They frequently asked if we needed anything, and made sure we were comfortable. We stopped... More

We just did a half day snorkel/sail, but it was probably the best of its kind we have ever experienced! Our captains gave us a lot of local information, and we went to the perfect snorkeling spot. We saw lots of interesting coral and several kinds of fish. The sailboat was very nice and well-maintained. We were on the smaller... More

We spent a day with Jason and Leslie with 9 of us, ranging from age 69 to 5. We spent time sailing and at two anchorages where there was great snorkeling. Leslie is very knowledgeable and a grwat guide. The food was simple but good and we had two gluten free and 1 vegetarian with no problem. Jason let me... More

Darius and Ally are the PERFECT Captains! This truly was the best day of our week's vacation. We sailed, snorkeled, had lunch at the Soggy Dollar Bar and stopped at Foxy's. Ally "hands down" makes the best Pain Killers of any of the bars. We really hope to repeat another sail with them, maybe for a full week!

Dariaus and Ally are the perfect Captains. We sailed on the 41 Cloud 9. The 3 other passengers were repeat customers and were a lot of fun. We even ordered Pizza in Christmas Bay from the Pizza boat. The Captains are newly wed and know St. John and the Waters around the VI extremely well. Will repeat.

My husband and I really enjoyed our time on Cloud 9 with Darius and Allie! They really know how to sail and the right places to take us snorkeling! There were a lot of swells/rain (I think they called it the Christmas north easterlies) the day of our day sail. Darius did a great job steering us away from the... More

Had a wonderful trip with Captain Jason with lots of sailing and sun. He and his first mate asked lots of questions of us to determine the best scuba sight for our kids based on where they had dived previously; and while the kids were scuba diving (accompanied by his first mate) - my wife and I snorkeled. The boat... More
